Summary

Super-sized Levine Toilolo is a huge (6' 8", 260 pounds) tight end who showed a knack in the red-zone on limited touches during 2013. However, his 2014 season was a disappointment in fantasy terms (51 targets for 31/238/2) as he was asked to stay in and block with the struggling Atlanta offensive line for much of the year. During 2015 free agency the Falcons signed Jacob Tamme, late of Denver, who had his best season as a receiver in Indianapolis during 2010 (67/631/4 receiving) - he got a two-year deal from Atlanta back in March. Tamme may challenge Toilolo for the starting job during training camp, and Tamme appears to be the better hope for fantasy production from the tight end position entering 2015. This is a situation that bears watching during the 2015 training camp/preseason. (May 14)

Falcons | Atlanta has high hopes for Jacob Tamme (Fri Jul 24, 06:39 PM) - Atlanta Falcons TE Jacob Tamme could be the best tight end the Falcons have had since TE Tony Gonzalez retired, according to Vaugh McClure of ESPN.com.

Our View: Tamme is not washed up, but in Denver he didn't get much of an opportunity behind Julius Thomas and Virgil Green. With the Falcons, we should see Tamme emerge as the top tight end. For fantasy purposes, we only consider Tamme a high-end TE3 with upside.
